Solving a problem with a business
Complaining to a business is often straightforward. However, if you have a problem with a product or a service, try the options for returning an item before contacting Consumer and Business Services (CBS).
Resolving issues and lodging complaints videos on the CBS YouTube channel also offer some good advice about getting a refund, a repair or replacement. You can choose from a list of preferred languages - Arabic, Dinka, English, Farsi, Nepalese, Tamil and Karen.
